If you’re bored of beaches and museums, and want something a little different this time round, why not choose a mountain escape? Known to revitalize and rejuvenate even the most weary of souls, these giants of the natural world offer much in the way of serenity and peace. Dotted with quaint mountain villages, and covered in sprawling forests, mountains are a great destination for an active vacation enjoying the great outdoors. Mountains are a great destination all year-round, but there’s no denying that the best time to visit Aspen, Colorado, is in winter, when the slopes are covered in snow, the lakes are glassy, and the whole place becomes a winter wonderland. Surrounded by the Elk Mountains, and located in the surrounds of the White River National Forest, it is a true playground! Top off an exciting break with one of the mountain cottages in Aspen, and create great memories.
